JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro police pulled over a car with fake tags on Monday morning and arrest a woman after finding a blue flashlight used for drugs.

According to Jonesboro police, Officer Jacob Daffron pulled over a Chevrolet Lumina in the intersection of Highland and Brazos, after he checked the registration of the license plate and it returned to be from a Ford Mustang.

Police saw there were four people in the car and 33-year-old April De Gray, claimed she was borrowing the car from someone else but couldn't remember the owner's whole name.

When dispatch ran the names of the driver and passengers, they found De Gray had a warrant out of Craighead County and a 22-year-old Cyrina Spranger had a warrant out of Jonesboro.

A K9 crew from the Craighead County Sheriff's Office was called to the scene. The dog sniffed the car and alerted officers of something in the back seats.

Officers searched the back seats and found a Dr. Pepper can. Police cut open the can and found a syringe and several small bags with unknown pills inside.

Police also found a blue flashlight with a missing lens. After taking a close look at it, officers found ash residue and concluded the flashlight was being used as a marijuana pipe.

De Gray received a citation for false tags and no proof of liability insurance. She is set to appear in court July 15.

Sprangler was cited for failing to appear in court. She was arrested on felony charges including drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence.

She was transported to the Craighead County Detention Center.

Sprangler is being held in lieu of a probable cause hearing as well as a $760 cash only bond.
